- Available in our new Dream–Tex fabric… built just for hammocks, it combines a traditional ripstop weave with a bias-directional diamond grid to create a fabric that has an incredibly comfortable cotton-like texture. Add in a fantastic strength to weight ratio and just the right amount of stretch and you have an ideal hammock fabric. 40 denier 1.6 osy
- 10′ long x 62″ wide hammock body, 101″ Ridgeline, end-gathered design.
- Comes with a noseeum mosquito net top that unzips fully on the entrance side and can be folded over the side of the hammock when not needed.
- Incorporates a 7″ wide strip of netting to raise the canopy’s edge-height above your face so that all of the hammock body width is useable, allowing you to lay right to the edge of the zipper while still having plenty of headroom. This gives the effect of wider body fabric but at a lighter weight.
- Multiple suspension options that are easily removable and interchangeable
- Footbox for maximum legroom
- Features the famous easily-accessible storage shelf adjacent to the hammock body, around 2 square feet of storage space at your fingertips but out of your way.
- Fully compatible with our 2/3 length Yeti and full-length Wooki Regular underquilt models.
- Can be setup on the ground as a bug bivy. Be sure to use a groundcloth and pad underneath to protect the hammock fabric.
- Elastic side guylines pull the netting away from and out of your face. One or both can be removed if desired.

Note: The weight ratings listed below are based on comfort, not absolute tensile strength. So for instance the single layer is rated for a max of 250 lbs because users above that weight will experience more stretch than is ideal and so would be more comfortable in something with more support (like the Heavyweight double). The comfort ratings can be pushed somewhat but you will be trading in comfort in doing so.
Single Layer Blackbird:
Max comfort range: up to 275 lbs
Max load: 350 lbs
Hammock weight (without suspension): 15.75 oz.
Fabric: 40D Nylon
Lightweight Double Blackbird:
Max comfort range: up to 275 lbs
Max load: 350 lbs
Hammock weight (without suspension): 1lb. 5.75oz.
Fabric: 40d Nylon Outer, 20d Nylon Inner
Heavyweight Double Blackbird:
Max comfort range: up to 400 lbs
Max load: 400 lbs
Hammock weight (without suspension): 1lb. 11.75 oz.
Fabric: 70D Nylon (x2)
Listed weights include net top and stuffsac but not the suspension
You loosen the ridgeline by loosening the hammock suspension and you tighten the ridgeline by tightening the hammock suspension. The ridgeline should be neither super tight nor drooping, and this will be achieved when your suspension straps run at about a 30 deg angle. Tightening/loosening the suspension will also raise/lower the hammock, so you may need to raise/lower the straps on the tree trunk to dial in the final hammock height which should be about chair height.
This refers to the weight of the fabric only, the heavyweight fabric being a heavier, stronger, more durable fabric than the lightweight fabric. It does not refer to the weight or weight capacity of the hammock itself. For instance a single layer 1.7 is made of the heavier more durable fabric, but since it is a single layer it is lighter than the lightweight double layer. So single layer vs. double layer has as much effect on hammock weight and weight capacity as fabric type does. All weight capacity and product weight info is listed in the collapsible product details boxes to the right of the product description.
For more information on which one is right for you, see our hammocking 101 page.
Generally any standard-sized backpacking pad (20″ or 25″ width) will work regardless of thickness and length, but in general the largest commercial camping pad that will be appropriate will be the size of the Exped downmat 9 LW, which is aprox. 77″x25″x3.5″; Also keep in mind that in a hammock you need insulation only, no padding is needed so extra thick air mattresses are not necessary; R-value and warmth are what are really important. Also keep in mind that if you are considering buying a new pad to use with one of our end-gathered hammocks (like the Blackbird or XLC), that an underquilt will be much more comfortable and a lot less hassle so you should seriously consider putting that money towards an underquilt instead.
We have several different hammock models each having different features, a breakdown of the differences can be found partway down our Hammock 101 page.
All of our hammocks come with the stuff sack included and your choice of suspension. Recommended items are listed on each hammock page.
